Haven Competition Terms & Conditions
Congratulations to Karin, who has won $1,000 in the ‘Australia’s Big Things’ competition from our last edition of Haven, with her entry of a nostalgic childhood photo in front of South Australia’s Big Lobster and its ripper accompanying yarn.
Here is a pic of us coming home from a camping adventure along the South Australian south coast outside the Big Lobster in Kingston, circa 1980’s.
In the trailer is our trusty tent and camping gear. We are in one of our beloved Triumphs, this fine motor vehicle had a gorgeous vinyl rollback sun roof, almost the size of the whole roof.
Problem was during this trip she leaked as it rained and rained. We tried pushing tissues into the side of the sunroof but they got saturated and fell on our heads.
Our thongs were floating in the water in the footwells of the car, that was ankle deep by the time we got home.
I remember so much laughter from this trip. We loved that car so much, and our feet were pretty wrinkly by the end.
Dad now drives a Holden Colorado – but we still have that trailer!
